Date: 11th March 2010

BSP, Digicel and the Fiji Rugby Union have today announced a co-sponsorship agreement for the Digicel Fiji Rugby 7s team.
This partnership agreement recognises BSP as the Official Partner to the Digicel Fiji 7s Team.

In signing the co-sponsorship agreement, the BSP Country Manager, Kevin McCarthy announced that, "BSP recognises Colonial's long and fruitful association with Fiji rugby. We are excited with this continued association for the development of rugby in Fiji. This joint partnership will take our support of rugby to a new level and marks the first step in BSPs relationships with rugby and the Fiji Rugby Union."

Mr McCarthy added that, "Rugby 7s continues to grow as a sport and has an increasingly wide appeal across all racial, gender, social and age groups.

BSP is therefore excited about this new partnership with the Digicel Fiji 7s.

Fiji Rugby Union CEO, Keni Dakuidreketi welcomed the partnership saying, "The FRU's focus remains on finding and developing our best players as well as producing a team that can win the IRB 7s Series. It is my hope this new three-way partnership will help us do just that and in this regard I'd like to welcome BSP on board and at the same time thank Digicel for their continued commitment to Fiji Rugby."
